The Raven business plan presents a housing supply programme of around 200 new homes per year in a mix of tenures that will include building homes for Shared Ownership as well as a private sale. All their new homes are energy efficient and combine contemporary design with exacting build standards.

Current developments offering properties for Shared Ownership include:

  • Burgess Hill, West Sussex
  • Horley, Surrey
  • Crawley, West Sussex
  • Billingshurst, West Sussex
  • Turners Hill, West Sussex


Raven believes that every home matters and that’s they are committed to an ambitious programme of building on average 220 affordable homes and 40-50 for market sale every year.

Shared ownership provides the opportunity to purchase a share in a property which is usually between 25% and 75% of the property value, making homeownership more affordable. You pay for a mortgage on the share you buy and pay rent to Raven on the remainder.

Resales are homes that previous customers purchased through shared ownership which are offered for sale. The process is the same as buying with shared ownership but new owners buy the same or a higher percentage share than that of the seller.
